Grand Theft Auto Goes Racing!

Wil McCombs checks in this week with a lively piece looking at the online racing offerings in Grand Theft Auto IV. Be sure to share your online experiences with GTA Race mode as well!

" I know what youíre thinking. Why the Grand Theft Auto articles?

First of all, back the #&*! up. Even though we are fanatically dedicated to sports gaming, we must sit back and take note at a landmark achievement in gaming when it presents itself. And Grand Theft Auto IV is certainly such an achievement. Even though we havenít officially reviewed it here at Operation Sports, it is worth stating that IV is everything we hoped for, and a whole lot more."

Nothing landmark about repugnant games depicting abhorrent human behavior. Plenty of garbage like that out there already.

Stick to sports reviews.

Oh, and the "go #@&! yourself" comments? Equally obnoxious.

Re: Grand Theft Auto Goes Racing!

I'm not a huge fan of the "back the #&*! up" either, but GTA is certainly one of the landmark games of the year. I haven't tried the online racing modes yet, but they certainly have the capability of being very fun experiences. I have done some of the races in the single player mode and they've been pretty good so far, though the level of competition in the early races is not very good if you have a top of the line car. Everyone driving the same thing in online sounds like a nice change of pace from the other game modes however.

Agreed, but considering most of us would be warned for saying that to just one person here in the forums, but he can effectively tell the entire OS readership to take a flying f, it leaves a bit to be desired. I more just think that the article didn't need that...swearing at me didn't add anything to it...but whatever...

Re: Grand Theft Auto Goes Racing!

it was a joke folks you know, given the "colorful" language in the game and what not. it certainly wasn't cursing at readers.
